Kangaroo Island Health Service provides acute services ranging from in-hospital care for adults and children by local general practitioners to specialist surgical, obstetrics, and outpatients.
Patients may commence their stay at Kangaroo Island Health Service but finish their care at one of the neighbouring hospitals with specialist medical or allied health input when required. All hospitals in the region work collaboratively to support the patient care needs of the region.
Emergency services provided at the KI Health Service will be covered by the public health system, depending on eligibility. Any non-urgent outpatient services (ie: GP Procedures, Mirena Insertions, onsite Aged Care facilities) will be covered by medicare Australia.
